The Drag Nano Pod is one of the latest pod kit offerings from Voopoo. With the first 500, 000 supplied with the necklace in the Fans Version of both NON-TPD and TPD versions of packaging.
*Tip – When placing the necklace on use masking tape around the pod so it doesn’t get scratched as it a little tight getting the hoop on.
The Voopoo Drag Nano Pod is available in the following resin colour schemes. Klein Blue, Tidal (The colour of the reviewed pod), Ceylon Yellow, Fiesta, INK, Aurora, and Nebulas Blue.

The packaging I received is the usual white packaging with a simple layout making it easy to read. The usual social media branding on the side, QR code for technical support. On the back of the packaging, we have the description of the contents, usual health warnings, and the scratch and check authenticity.
Inside the box, you are greeted with the Voopoo Drag Nano itself, the 1.8 Ω pod, the silver coloured chain (Fans Version) and the USB cable. Also included was the usual envelope with the little user guide, GENE CHIP card, and warranty card.
The build quality on the dinky Drag Nano is extremely good, and lightweight. I do not have one complaint on the quality of this pod. I think its small size is perfect, reminding me of my old zippo lighters.
If you get the Fans version, the supplied double chain is much nicer than I thought it was going to be and extremely tough.
The Drag Nano feels like it would survive living in a pocket or bag. However if you do it will get scratched up but that is to be expected, hence the chain. I did at one point lose the Drag Nano for a while. Until I put my hand in my pocket, feeling slightly less obtrusive than the Finic Fish pod from Voopoo, and despite the slight difference in weight. I just had not noticed it in my pocket.
Weighing in at approximately 55 g the Drag Nano is not heavy at all. Standing at 54.5 mm height, 35 mm across, and only 11 mm deep the Drag Nano is tiny. Its size is cute but not in a feminine way, and extremely practical for the upcoming summer. Wether that’s popping out to the shops, or out for an afternoon with your favourite juice.
Although I love the build quality of the Drag Nano, I feel Voopoo have made one bad choice of design. On the base of the Drag Nano, is raised logo lettering of GENE CHIP which looks good, but is awkward to stand it on its base. Ok its not a major thing, and you need to lay it on its back to charge. I just would prefer to stand it on its base without it falling over a couple of times whilst I balance it right with unsteady hands.
The Drag Nano is super easy to use, lift out the pod, take the mouthpiece off the pod, there is a small hole on the side to fill with your juice. Simply fill it up to below the juice hole. Ensure that it is level of both sides of the pods, you may have to wait for it to level out. Place the mouth piece back on and pop the pod back in. You’re all set to go.
Vape and enjoy.
On the side of the Nano there is a battery status LED towards the base. Green is 60% or more power left. Blue is 20% – 60% power. Red is less than 20% power remaining.
Charging of the 750mAH battery takes around an hour to fully charge and that’s from a USB port on a computer so happy days. The battery life for such a small pod kit is actually quite good and better than most true pod kits out on the market at the moment, especially when taking its size into consideration.
With the GENE Pod chipset the Voopoo Drag Nano offers five safety features.
10s time out to protect against coil burn out. Short circuit protection to protect the battery, Protection from overcharging the battery. Discharge battery protection so your battery does not get too low and becomes unusable. Finally output over protection, to ensure your output stays within limits to the pods need, protecting you and the pod.
The Voopoo Drag Nano Pod kit is a great tiny pod kit that produces a nice amount of vapour, doesn’t have as tight as draw as the Voopoo Finic Fish and wicks 70VG juice happily. However you just can’t excessively chain vape on it.
The pod itself holds 1 ml of e-liquid and seems to last reasonably well. A lot longer than I was expecting. It’s great to look and no doubt will get comments from people around you who have not seen it before.
Like most pod systems its flavour profile is best suited to fruits and some creams. I find it difficult to decide what I prefer the best the Uwell Caliburn or the Voopoo Drag Nano for flavour. Both are a good enjoyable vape. Yet they pick out slightly different notes from the juice. For the most part because of its size I think ultimately The Drag Nano is going to be the winner for me on this one.
Apart from the design of the base that I mentioned previously, I do wish that Voopoo would supply a second pod. Pod kits are generally for new vapours which makes them less experienced. They are more likely to make mistakes and needing a replacement coil sooner. Especially if they fill it up with an overly sweet e-liquid. With new launches from any manufacture, the replacement coil availability can be low and difficult to obtain until vendors get them in.
